Materiality & Immateriality – Design and Innovation

This exhibition is in homage to Les Immatériaux, which was curated at the Centre Pompidou in 1985 by the philosopher Jean-François Lyotard. One of the guest curators of Nuit Blanche Murielle Hladik re-examines the possibilities of the concepts of materiality and immateriality. Japanese and French artists and designers present their malleable experiments around 5 themes. In New Media, Jean-Louis Boissier, Fujihata Masaki and others undertake virtual and at the same time interactive relationships with the audience, while Perception Abilities includes work by Gaëlle Gabillet & Stéphane Villard and others that questions the essence of materiality. In The Other Side of Materiality, the artwork of Onishi Yasuaki and the concept by Softpad with the assistance of Kamisoe show the world of materiality and immateriality from the angles of both material sensibility and thought. Cylindrical booths with floating moiré patterns are lined up like trees in the exhibition space by Eisuke Tachikawa of NOSIGNER.
You can walk through while observing and contemplating as if you are
strolling through a forest.
